MATCHUP WE’RE MOST INTRIGUED BY

Neah Bay vs. Mount Vernon Christian: Don't look now, but the streaky and scary Red Devils are hitting their stride at the right time with 11 consecutive wins. They throttled their top District 4 rival - Mount Vernon Christian - in last weekend's tri-district championship game, 73-31. Neah Bay lives and dies by the 3-pointer (nearly 23 attempts per game), led by guards Laila and Allie Greene.
